  • Good spot on water


    House was clean and well stocked. There is a sort if sulfur smell that comes from faucets upstairs but seemed to go away eventually, guessing the pipes just dont get much use.

    Manager's Response:

    Dear Brandon, thank you for your feedback on the sulfur smell from one of the upstairs faucets. This caught us by surprise since none of the other guests had mentioned it. Nevertheless, as a result of your review, we are installing a system that claims to remove these smells from well water so the problem should be solved for future guests. You know what they say about well water: the price of living in paradise! Thanks again and we hope you return and enjoy the peaceful setting, waterfront, kayaks, location, and other amenities at The Seafarer.

  • Long weekend for nearby family gathering

  • House ok, Not Worth the Nightly Rate



    1. The kitchen was well stocked.

    2. The rooms were clean (although the sliding back door was not clean and shower stall doors were very streaked).

    3. The dock was nice (but loud traffic noise, see below).

    4. The bath towels were nice.


    1. The house is next to a highway. The traffic noise was extremely loud during the day.

    2 The water pressure in the showers was low.

    3. There were ants in the bathroom.

    4. There were rings in the toilets.

    5. There were no overhead lights in the bedrooms.

    6. The water is very sulfurous especially in the bathrooms. We ended up bringing in drinking water and water for brushing our teeth.

    7. The beds were fine but the bed linens, pillows and curtains were of low quality.

    8. The dishwasher very dirty- we cleaned the filter.

    9. The boats (it was stated you could rent) were in really bad shape.

    Don’t rent this house expecting an idyllic waterfront experience- the traffic is LOUD.

    The house is ok, but nowhere near acceptable for the price I paid.

    This was our personal experience, I have pictures of everything I’ve written about here.

  • Great Place to Stay


    Our family had a great stay. This is a new house and is very well stocked. It has a cupboard with spices and good oil and vinegar and another cupboard with coffee, sugar, and creamer. There’s a good selection of pots and pans and plenty of garbage bags, tp, and tissue. It has kayaks, a basketball and hoop, and some good board games. The manager of the property is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this rental, and hope to return soon!
